    Trimac Transportation runs teams out of Louisiana.
    I think the Geismar terminal is the high paying terminal with cryogenics loads.
    Each driver in the team makes over $100K per year.
    Louisiana
    » Geismar
    » Lake Charles
    » Sulphur

    You could easily make $1600 week with Fedex Ground. I do dedicated, could make $100k, but Im lazy and take off too much. Most runs 5 days a week, tues-sat.

    You can be millionaires within 10 years, considering each of you makes $100K plus per year.
    Ten years at the outside, but much sooner if you live frugally.

    I wouldn't move until after I had talked to current drivers at the companies you are considering. The advertised details on web pages, etc are seldom what YOU will experience. Those details alsmost alwasy mention "averages" or "out top 10 drivers average..." You want to know reality for teams and you learn that by talking to team drivers at the company terminal you are considering. If the company wants you they will be happy to give your phone number to one of those teams.

    If you believe the ads or web pages every job sounds like you will simultaneously get rich and have as much time off as you want.

    I got a 40% pay raise by changing companies after 18 years. I started at that company for the OK pay and regular 5 day schedule and generous time-off. I should have left when they changed schedules to mandatory 6 days weeks but I didn't realize how much OT I was missing out on and how much other companies were paying compared to that job.

    Yes Air Products are super picky . But they pay 98k-115k for each driver on teams. That N.O. yard is union and that's the hydrogen plant. So they stay busy
